“They are scoring week in and out, Osimhen and Simon are doing well, I’m super proud of them.”


On the current Super Eagles squad, Utaka has this to say : “Honestly we have a very strong team with good players and I just think we should keep them together for more longer, they have done well.” Utaka told brila.net.


Meanwhile, Osimhen has been linked with a move to many European clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspurs.


Moses on his part is also said to be on the wish list of French Champions Paris Saint-Germain, but his future will be sorted by his parent club Levante.
